Boho Desert Bridals

A couple of weeks ago we were able to collaborate 
on a styled photo shoot with K Ell Photography
This bouquet was a bright mix of pinks and oranges which was a fun contrast to the neutral desert backdrop. 
And let's talk about the dress! It's actually a skirt and top but it's such a fun look for a more casual/bohemian wedding. Thanks for the collab Kailee!

Classic Organic

Classic & Organic are the two words I would use to describe this wedding. The color scheme was one of my favorites! Blue & White with accents of orange. This is a color scheme that can go very wrong or very right. I think in this case it went very right! 

The bride's mother had a beautiful collection of blue and white pottery that we used for centerpieces and decor on the tables. We also played up the greenery in the flowers to bring in that organic look. 

One other unique feature of this wedding was the bouquet. It needed to last two days since the reception and wedding ceremony were on separate days. So this bouquet was actually constructed in a foam bouquet holder (that's why you'll notice there is no water in the vase, the foam is soaked in water before we make the bouquet). You may think of a 90's cascading bouquet when you think bouquet holder, but that's not all they're good for! 
Most people would never even guess this was done in one because we do a very good job disguising it :) This type of bouquet will last at least twice as long as the average hand tied bouquet, so you can enjoy it when you get home from your honeymoon!

Secret Garden Tablescape

Let's face it, putting together mock table settings is what we florists do for fun. :) 
The original photo shoot we had been asked to be a part of was cancelled due to the rainy weather, but that wasn't going to stop us from showing off these beautiful blooms!

Gold rimmed china, handwritten menus and place cards, beautiful silk ribbon, a textured damask table overlay, and lots of candles, really helped set off the focal point centerpiece. We also added some fun floral details to the menu and chair. You really don't need a whole lot of "stuff" to make a 
beautiful table.  Thoughtfully chosen linens, flowers, and tableware really make all the difference.
